Audi R8 V8 Driving Experience
Over 6 miles driving plus a high speed passenger lap included
Not seen often on the UK’s roads, the Audi R8 is fast becoming an icon. With a sound from it’s glorious V8 that resembles an American muscle car, it’s fast, comfortable and since it shares the same chassis from the Lamborghini Gallardo – very surefooted. And as it also sports permanent four wheel drive, it’s an exhilarating all weather Supercar. The acceleration has to be felt to be believed, and the sound from behind your ears from that wonderful V8 is truly unforgettable!
First off, you will sign in with our registration team, then it’s time to climb into the beautiful leather driving seat of the R8. With our Instructor offering guidance where need be, it’s time to head out of the pits for 6 miles driving this stunning Supercar!
The fun isn’t over yet though! Time to jump in the passenger seat of our specially prepared performance saloon for a High Speed passenger lap driven by a Race Instructor! Really great fun!

Not seen often on the UK’s roads, the Audi R8 is fast becoming an icon. With a sound from its glorious 414bhp V8 engine that resembles an American muscle car, it’s fast, comfortable and since it shares the same chassis from the Lamborghini Gallardo – very surefooted. And as it also sports permanent four wheel drive, it’s an exhilarating all weather Supercar. The acceleration has to be felt to be believed, and the sound from behind your ears from that wonderful V8 is truly unforgettable! Dial in its top speed of 187mph and a 0-60mph time of 4.5 seconds, the R8 is one Supercar that really has to be driven to appreciate its incredible performance.
Upon arrival at the location, the lucky driver will receive their driver registration (to show their driving licence and fill out a few forms) and will also receive a complimentary hot drink voucher. They will then be directed across to the demonstration lap area, to receive one instructor driven lap around the track to become familiar with the track that lies ahead. Once this has finished, the driver will be shown to the Audi R8 V8 for their drive. After a quick chat and in-car briefing with the friendly instructor in the passenger seat, the driver will pull out of the pit lane for their 6 miles* driving the Audi R8 around the track.
If this isn’t enough for them, the lucky driver will then receive a high speed passenger ride in the Ford Focus RS for one lap speeding around the track! Definitely a day to remember!
To finish their experience, the recipient will receive a Certificate of Supercar Driving Experience to keep as a memento from the day!
